Borderlands 2 for PlayStation Vita arrives in May

UPDATE: 28th May in Europe.

UPDATE 09/05/14 10.15am: Borderlands 2 will finally arrive for PlayStation Vita on 28th May in Europe.

The news was announced today via a post to the official PlayStation EU Twitter account.

Borderlands 2 on Vita will allow you to pick up your progress from the game's PlayStation 3 version and includes some - but not all - of the game's DLC. More details on all of that lie below.

ORIGINAL STORY 09/04/14 11.05am: The PlayStation Vita version of Borderlands 2 will finally launch next month, Sony has confirmed.

Already played the PlayStation 3 version for hundreds of hours? Not to worry - Borderlands 2 on Vita will let you pick up where you left off using the game's Cross-Save support, a new EU PlayStation blog post explained.

Four player online co-op support will also be included.

The Vita version contains six of the game's expansion packs: Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty, Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage, the Psycho and Mechromancer character classes plus the Collector's Edition pack and Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 1.

It's a generous helping of content but one that lacks the game's last two season pass add-ons (Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt and Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep), the level cap raising Upgrade Pack 2 and the five Headhunter DLC mini-expansions.

The news comes just a day after word of an upcoming Borderlands 2 prequel headed to PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 later this year.
